Same here. Not sure when it happened, but I think I was messing with the guest account. BLuetooth icon is still there, network icon (both for wifi and wired) is gone on either account.

No its not coming back. Worse yet; I cant seem to switch wifi networks using switchboard. Wifi networks appear in the list, but selecting one doesnt do anything.

OK I got it working again. I removed indicator-cpufreq and I suspect that was the root cause.
Removing it and loggin out didnt solve (I probably should have rebooteed) so I tried reinstalling network-manager too. That and a reboot did the trick.

oddly enough; trying to reproduce the error I reinstalled indicator-cpufreq, rebooted, and the network indicator is still there. cpufreq is invisible (but works) but that was like that the fist time too. So Im still not quite sure what caused and cured it
